Written by John Hamre   

 

The 15th Annual Major League Wheelchair Softball Tournament took place at the home of MLB Rolling Red Sox, VA Healthcare Center, Brockton MA on September 26th and 27th, 2015.  3 Wheelchair Softball Teams sponsored by Major League Baseball franchises competed.  The New England Rolling Red Sox, New York Mets and New York Yankees fought for the coveted "Kelly Cup", named after Eastern Paralyzed Veterans Association and United Spinal Association’s' former Executive Director, Jerry Kelly.

 

After playing 8 games over two days, the New England Rolling Red Sox beat the New York Yankees to win the 15th Annual Major League Wheelchair Softball Tournament.

 

On behalf of the players, coaches and Wheelchair Sports Federation, we'd like to thank the Brockton VA, NY Mets, Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, MLB, and NY City Parks & Recreation for their continued support.  Without their help, we could not have a premiere Wheelchair Softball Tournament in the Northeast and one of the better events for Adaptive Sports in the United States.
